Regardless of Ingmar Bergman’s own opinions, he has had a major influence on a number of artists. The book mentions, for example, works by Joseph Beuys and Ylva Snöfrid that are based on Bergman’s films and theatre productions, and Ragnar Kjartansson writes about his relationship with the director and his Scenes from a Marriage.
 “A number of interesting ideas about what it means to be an artist are covered in this book. And it is remarkable to learn that so many visual artists, especially outside Sweden, have been influenced by Bergman”, says editor Björn Norberg.
 Everything Represents – Nothing Is, is published by Dokument Press in connection with an exhibition with the same name, a cooperation between Gävle konstmuseum and the Ingmar Bergman Foundation. The exhibition will tour Gävle konstcentrum, Fotgrafisk Center in Copenhagen and Kunstcenter Silkeborg Bad.
 Everything Represents – Nothing Is is edited by Eva Asp and Björn Norberg. Picture editor: Hélène Dahl. The book includes essays by Eva Asp, Ingmar Bergman, Jan Holmberg, Kristine Kern, Ragnar Kjartansson, Björn Norberg, Egil Törnqvist and Göran Wassberg. Included artworks are by Joseph Beuys, Maria Finn, Axel Fridell, Ragnar Kjartansson, Hanna Ljungh, P.A. Lundgren, Magdalena von Rudy and Ylva Snöfrid.
 The book is designed by Magnus Frederiksen.
